    Default Favorite Serenity / Firefly one-liners

    Love those Firefly one-liners! My favorite is, "I can kill you with my brain."

    What's yours?

    Heh, I've always liked "GRRRR! Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!" Along with that whole bit..

    Sheppard: "Y’know, we’ve been having these conversations for a couple of weeks now, and I don’t even know your name. You guys do have names, right? Let me guess...Steve?"
    Wraith: "I am your death. That is all you need to know."
    Sheppard: "I prefer Steve."

    A rather obscure line from 'The Message', in which the Fed is talking to a mail clerk about the whereabouts of a dead body...

    Fed - "Malcom Reynolds... hmmm, where do you suppose he's off to?"
    Clerk - "He... uh... he captains a Firefly, you should be able to catch him if you leave now..."
    Fed - "...Are you telling me to leave?"
    Clerk - "Wha- ...no, no I didn't do tha-..."
    Fed - *Laughs* Relax! You've been great! And I was just bluffing about that stuff about 'arresting' you, I mean who needs that kind of paper work, Skunk light him on fire."

    ...Well, that and my personal favorite Kaylee line:

    Kaylee - "ain't nothin' touched my nethers for a year that weren't battery run"

    Jayne - Ain't logical. Cuttin' on his own face, rapin' and murdering - Hell, I'll kill a man in a fair fight... or if I think he's gonna start a fair fight, or if he bothers me, or if there's a woman, or if I'm gettin' paid - mostly only when I'm gettin' paid. But these Reavers... last ten years they show up like the bogeyman from stories. Eating people alive? Where's that get fun?
    Kaylee - Shepherd Book said they was men who just reached the edge of space, saw a vasty nothingness, and went bibbledy over it.
    Jayne - Oh, hell, i've been to the edge. Just looked like... more space.

    Well, you called my favourite line, but the second and third are Jayne's:

    • "I'll be in my bunk."


    • "Dear diary: Today I was pompous and my sister was crazy... Today we were kidnapped
      by hill folk, never to be seen again. It was the best day ever."


    And then by Early:
    • "No, that's not it at all... I'm a bounty hunter."

    Too difficult to pick just one when practically everything is quotable.

    Mal: “Someone tries to kill you, you try to kill 'em right back.” (Our Mrs. Reynolds)

    Serenity
    Spoiler:
    “Dear Buddha, I would like a pony and a plastic rocket.”



    Practically everything Jayne says…. though "What ya'll order a dead guy for?" is classic.

    I didn’t catch this one until I saw Serenity the second time
    Spoiler:
    My muscular buttocks it's forty! (when they’re arguing with Fanty and Mingo about their cut)



    Book: “If you take sexual advantage of her, you're going to burn in a very special level of hell, a level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theatre.” (Our Mrs. Reynolds)

    Simon: (to Jayne) “My God, you're like a trained ape! Without the training.” (Jaynestown)

    “This must be what going mad feels like.” (Jaynestown when he can’t get over the fact that Jayne has a statue….and then later a song. I love his facial expression when he sees the statue.)

    IMO always implied.

    I just remembered these!

    Mal - "Mercy is the mark of a great man"
    *stab*
    Mal - "Ok, maybe I'm just a good man"
    *stab*
    Mal - "Well, I'm alright"

    and

    Warrick - "You didn't have to wound that man"
    Mal - "I know, it was just, funny"

    Sheppard: "Y’know, we’ve been having these conversations for a couple of weeks now, and I don’t even know your name. You guys do have names, right? Let me guess...Steve?"
    Wraith: "I am your death. That is all you need to know."
    Sheppard: "I prefer Steve."

    It's so hard to pick, because the series and movie were both so well written. one of my favourites though would have to be from River: "I swallowed a bug".
    The look on her face! Classic!

    This is like trying to pick something from The Princess Bride...

    "Lady, you are my kind of stupid." (Heart of Gold)

    "I am semi-muscular man. I can handle it." (War Stories)

    "This is something that the Captain has to handle on his own."
    "No, it isn't." (War Stories)

    "Any friend of Inara's is a business-like acquaintance of mine" (Heart of Gold)

    "I think they captured his essence"
    "He looks kinda angry"
    "That's what I mean" (Jaynestown)

    "I'd forgotten - you're moonlighting as a criminal mastermind now."
    "Yes; I'm thinking about growing a big black mustache. I'm a traditionalist."
    (War Stories)

    "My food is problematic" (The Message)

    "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth"

    Ahhhh so many great lines...

    Jayne: Do you know what the chain of command is here? It's the chain I go get and beat you with to show you who's in command.

    Mal: The wheel never stops turning, Badger.
    Badger: Only matters to the people on the rim.

    Mal: I don't believe there's a power in the 'verse that'll stop Kaylee from being so cheerful. Sometimes you just want to duct tape her mouth and dump her in the hold for a month.

    Wash: Here lies my beloved Zoe, my autumn flower. Somewhat less attractive now that she's all corpsified and gross.

    JANICE: Dr. Bob, you've given this hospital a bad name.
    DR BOB: You're right. Fred is a terrible name for a hospital. I'll give it a better name. How 'bout Eunice?

    Cute! I swear, River gets all the best lines! She's good -- not my favourite character, but I don't think I can pick a favourite Firefly character! They're all too well written and well acted!

    Theres just show many, I liked the bit in the trailer for Serenity.

    Mal "You wanna run this ship?"
    Jayne "Yes."
    Mal "well...you can't." The cinema burst out laughing at that.

    I also liked "I swallowed a bug" from the film. Jayne has some of the best lines, the "I'm be in my bunk," lines are funny and so is "What ya'll order a dead guy for...."

    Think I'll go watch some FF actually.

    I know this has been done to ABSOLUTE death but.........

    "I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar." Damn that was a fine line, I also like...
    Spoiler:
    Mal:"Rooster comes home to the roost." BANG a ship crashes into them and bounces off the hull visible from the bridge. Mal:"What the hell was that?!" Wash:"It's ok...i'm, i'm a leaf on the wind..." Mal: "What does that mean!?!?"


    Damned fine moments through the entire series/Movie, Joss Whedon should direct/write everything...

    There are so many:

    Mal to Simon concerning River: See, morbid and creepifying, I got no problem with. Long as she does it quiet like.

    Mal concerning "Mrs. Reynolds": Oh, I'm gonna go to the special hell.

    Wash: I've been in a firefight. Well, I was in a fire. Actually, I was fired from a fry-cook opportunity.

    Most of my favourite one liners come from Mal or Jayne. The muscular buttocks is especially funny.

    "Care to explain to me why there's a statue of you lookin at me like I owe him sumthin?" Mal, Jaynestown.

    ROFL!!! I love Simon's face when he says that! It's almost funnier than the line itself!
